Adzes are hand tools similar to an axe but with an arched blade at right angles to the handle. Bigger adzes are used for cutting or shaping large pieces of wood very quickly.  Smaller hand adzes are perfect to excavate material from the inside of smaller bowls, larger spoons and ladles.

Swedish tool makers Hans Karlsson and Svante Djarv make some of the best and most sought-after adzes for wood carving in the world. Quite often they are out-of-stock because we are only able to secure stock approx. once per year.  

You may need to sign up for an email alert on the relevant product page to be one of the first to be notified when new stock arrives.
